    back home from Divi - Trip report

    Quite happy with our trip to the Divi. The food was better than last trip so we didn't leave the resort much although we did enjoy a nice meal at L.G. Smiths and tapas at Salt and Pepper. The plan was to go to Yemanja but they were closed on Sunday so guess we'll have to wait til next time. The highlights for me this trip we're the turquoise blue lizard that ran across my path; the starfish that we're as big as a dinner plate and the amazing circular rainbow that we witnessed. Need to start planning the next trip.

    Hi Andrea, the weather was perfect, no rain. A few of the days were more windy then usual so it actually felt cool when you came out of the water. The Divi was quiet as well so never a problem getting shade on the beach or a place at the pool. In fact most of the week there were available spots at the pool through most of the day. Have you ever seen one of the circular rainbows? It really was something. The sun was in the center of the rainbow. I googled for images and the sites I found said it was uncommon. I know in my 50+ years I'venever seen anything like it.

    My biggest regret was not having my camera at the beach. When I got back home and back to work people had doubts! Just google circular rainbows and you will see some good photos.

    If you go on the Jolly Pirates Facebook page -Jolly Pirates Aruba - there is one there I believe. They don't say what it is but it shows the sun with a ring around it. You might have to "like" them to do it but then you can also see their pictures of the sea turtle rescue.
